import-module ac*
import-csv c:\file.csv | %  {$user = $_.samaccountname; Get-Aduser | select (whaevet objects you need) | export-csv c:\results.csv -nti}

Open in new window

This should work:

import-module ac*
import-csv c:\file.csv | %  {$user = $_.samaccountname; Get-Aduser -identity $user -properties * | select  Officephone, samaccountname | export-csv c:\result.csv -nti

Missing an ending brace "}" it was set to overwrite the CSV with each user
$users = import-csv c:\file.csv | % {$user = $_.samaccountname; Get-Aduser -identity $user -properties * | select  SamAccountName,Officephone} | export-csv c:\result.csv -nti

its alright. Also, is OfficePhone a valid attribute?

Usually there is just

telephoneNumber, mobile, otherTelephone, facsimileTelephoneNumber, homePhone, ipPhone, otherPager, otherMobile, otheripPhone, otherHomephone, and otherFacsimileTelephoneNumber...

Unless its an added attribute from exchange.

Also, if you could give credit to becraig, I just added a brace. At least give him most of it.

sorry, what i meant to do was select multiple answers and select craigs as the best.

Yes officephone is the telephone attribute.

How can i undo my points scoring?  Can you go to a moderator and ask them to do it?

You can just file a request for attention, though I am ok to split the points.
